Prayer of Thanksgiving

Jesus, thank you!

You have fed us with yourself that we may be bound to you in love,

and overcome every temptation to bind ourselves again to any other power.

In the power of the Holy Spirit, keep these bonds strong,

and send us forth to set others free from evil’s dominion. Amen.
